Some signs of a modest Biden agenda

Even in defeat, President Donald Trump has sucked the air out of the national discussion with his farfetched effort to overturn the election. His latest pardons, for disgraced members of Congress and war criminals, have dominated the news cycle. It’s easy to forget more substantive news: President-elect Joe Biden is putting together an agenda. This editorial board has long railed against government by executive order, which Trump and Barack Obama both used profligately. Biden already has signale...

The fate of California hangs on Georgia

So why should Californians care about a runoff election for two U.S. Senate seats in Georgia occurring Jan. 5? The answer is simple. The outcome of that election will have major implications for national politics and that includes profound impacts on California. Unlike Las Vegas, what happens in Georgia will not stay in Georgia. It is rare that two Senate seats are up for grabs in a single state simultaneously. And because the outcome will determine control of the U.S. Senate, it has focused the...
